We all have a persona or identity that we present to the world depending on the role we are playing. We naturally find comfort and safety in these roles because we know who we are, what is expected of us and what we are working towards.
To illustrate my point, I remember being faced with a new challenge when I was in corporate and having to take a step back because I had absolutely no idea how to handle it. I would ask myself what a successful 7 figure CEO (or whatever my role was at the time) would do and then I would know exactly what to do.
When your identity is changed because of your circumstances (like leaving a job where you have created abundant success and starting all over again in your new business) there is always a time where you dont really know who you are – you no longer identify with the old and are developing the new you.
Until you establish who you are at every stage of your business, it is important to be mindful of your approach to your work, especially if your intention is to live your purpose through your offering.
Here are the top 5 mistakes many struggling entrepreneurs make and a fresh approach to consider:
1. Approaching their purposeful business with their corporate mindset. Do more, Be more, Get more!
Successful purposeful entrepreneurs balance the “receiving inspiration” part (feminine) with the masculine “action taking” part in alignment with their personal and business values.
2. When they struggle with something, they push themselves to work harder and longer and PUSH through it.
Successful purposeful entrepreneurs recognize that struggle is a distraction and they are in resistance with themselves so they go within to see what is really going on and shift their mindset and take the corresponding action.
3. Putting on a brave face to the world, feeling vulnerable and shameful about admitting their struggles because they feel they SHOULD know what to do.
Successful purposeful entrepreneurs recognize that they don’t know everything and approach every new task with the openness of a beginners mind. They get the support they need to move through the challenge with ease and grace (and no drama)
4. They get stuck in comparisonitis.
Successful purposeful entrepreneurs develop their offering and put it out there without fear of judgement. They know that what other people think of them has very little to do with them and everything to do with other peoples level of awareness and resonance.
5. They try to work out what their clients want and need. This gets them stuck in their heads and not moving forward.
Successful purposeful entrepreneurs structure their business around their own desires, get clear on the offering that lights them up and magnetize their ideal clients to them.
All 5 of these points arise from being in our heads only (what we think we should do) and the problem with that is: the voice in our heads is the voice of our subconscious so all you hear all day long is your programming.
When you connect your heart (what lights us up) and your head, you hear your inner wisdom and guidance, apply your experience and take inspired action to move forward.
Remember that your conscious mind is the goal-setter and your subconscious mind is the goal-getter. Both need to be aligned for your desires to become manifest and your mindset is the balancing factor.
Every successful entrepreneur was once where you are now!
The confusion; the procrastination; the self-doubt and all the what ifs just energize and perpetuate the struggle.
It takes getting into reality that things aren’t going to change, unless you do. In reality, we create struggle as a distraction from our fears.
Those that make it: draw a line in the sand and say NO MORE!
It is then, and only then that their desires become larger than their fears and they go after it with everything they have got.
Because they know that if they don’t face what is holding them back and clear it, success will remain a dream, just out of reach.
Many of us do a spiritual bypass where we use every manifestation tool, treatment, meditation within grasp, yet find that despite being hugely busy, we aren´t getting the results that we truly desire. Deep down we know something is blocking us and we have tried everything we can think of to clear it. These blocks generally sit in our blind spots and are filled with our fears.
I understand how our fears hold us back, because mine do too! We never stop learning and growing and as we breakthrough each glass ceiling, our awareness grows and we reach a new level of understanding. More possibilities open up to us and then, as it happens on every level, any resistance we have to the new desire, will come up to be attended to.
I struggled for some years before I reached my limit and did the inner work I had been avoiding and I can promise you – it is never as bad as we fear. It is the most liberating work I have done on myself and as I healed, I became lighter and lighter – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
I did it and so can you – and you will find every step of the way liberating and exciting!
You already have all the potential you will ever need within you! Tap into your Mojo, get focused and just do it!
